Yesterday…What I Saw

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I saw people hug, their strength to share.
The sense of grief, hung heavy in the air.
I saw beautiful flowers in the Spring sun.
I saw the damage ‘Hillsborough’ had done.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 I saw people reaching out to touch a name.
As ever, I saw a comforting, flickering flame.
People with their heads bowed, I also saw.
I saw a banner asking for a Hillsborough Law.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 I saw people sat on benches, ‘miles away’
I saw pictures of fans, who were lost that day.
I looked at other club colours…lovely to see.
I saw all that yesterday at 6 minutes past 3.
